PlayStation Vita owners in Europe who like having physical copies of their games will have a new option, as The Longest Five Minutes is going to come out on cartridges in the region. NIS America has confirmed on Twitter that this will be its final PlayStation Vita physical release in the region.
NIS America revealed it will be the last PlayStation Vita game in its catalog to get a physical release in Europe after noting preorders for the game would open at 12pm GMT on February 8, 2019. This clarification was necessary, as in North America NIS America will be releasing three last PlayStation Vita physical copies on March 19, 2019. These are The Longest Five Minutes, The Lost Child, and Penny-Punching Princess. When those releases were announced, NIS America didn’t have any information on a European release.
Here is the official tweet with NIS America’s statement.
The Longest Five Minutes will be the final European PlayStation®Vita title physically published by NIS America.
